Darling, do you want the Christmas tree over in front of the window?
We had it in front of the window last year. What about over there in that corner?
We’d have to move the sofa.
We can always move the sofa back. Just give it a push. No, it doesn’t look right. Move the sofa back. What about that corner over there?
There’s no electric plug for the Christmas tree lights. I suppose we could do without lights this year. A change is as good as a holiday.
No Christmas tree lights! Goodness me. You’re so negative. Why are you so negative about things? I make a suggestion and you run me down. I only suggested we put the tree over there and you attack me.
I didn’t attack you. I just said there was no way to run a cable for the lights.
You said you didn’t want lights on the tree. We can’t have a tree without lights.
I never said that. I said there was no electricity outlet.
I’ve a better idea. Why don’t we change the whole room around just for Christmas? Put the dining table and chairs over there. Move the sofa and armchairs here, with the television against that wall, and then the Christmas tree can go where the dining table was. Just move them, dear, and we’ll see.
Phew! That was a lot of hefty stuff!
No. It doesn’t feel right. Put the things back, dear. What say we put the tree in front of the window like last year? It looked good. I don’t know why you wanted to change it.
